Instructors can place materials on reserve at the Help Desk for their students to use. These items can be materials from the library's collection, or from the instructor's personal collection (books, videos, textbooks, notes, etc.). Items on reserve generally must be used in the library. Instructors can set the check-out period for reserve items (usually 3 hours).
If students need to make copies of a reserve item, they may use the library's copy machine (10 cents per page). If the item on reserve is a movie, students can watch the movie in one of the library's study rooms.
The library staff are happy to instruct students on how to use the library and its many resources. The Loman C. Trover Library comes equipped with a library instruction classroom (LRC213) with seating for up to 24 students, 18 laptops and 24 Qwizdom Clickers for hands-on instruction. We are proud to offer the following methods of library instruction at Madisonville Community College:
Point-of-use instruction and modeling of approrpiate practices (at the Help Desk or by appointment).
In order to ensure an optimal learning environment, we ask that faculty please schedule library instruction and class visits in advance. Library instruction and class visits are scheduled on a first-come, first-served basis. Faculty are discouraged from bringing classes into the library unannounced.
The staff at MCC Libraries actively solicit requests for materials, and we welcome your recommendations. When making requests, please be mindful of the library's Policies for Collection Acquisition and Maintenance.
Different staff members in the library are responsible for interacting with faculty in each Academic Department. If you are a faculty member, you can contact your library liaison using the list below. We look forward to hearing from you!
